"She makes the Venus de Milo look like she's got no style"
or just about any of the happy, one dimensional songs off Springsteen's The River

I think this is even harder than the favorite single line thread!

Umm...hmm...I guess, sticking with Ryan, I'd go with:

"Felt like an engine that just didn't need a tire" (Gimme A Sign)

The nineties bring new questions, new solutions to be found
- Learning To Live by Dream Theater

Wow, way to date the song, Myung. The few Dream Theater songs written by bassist John Myung are excellent, but that one line just sounds really bad and dated nowadays.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

'I've got soul but I'm not a soldier' from All These Things That I've Done by The Killers - an awful awful line that destroys what would be a perfectly good song and for me makes it completely unlistenable.

I agree. I love that song, but that line is just awful.

"Hey, shut up/hey, shut up" from Andy, You're A Star being repeated over and over is awful as well.

Too bad we can't talk about U2 because "life should be fragrant, rooftop to the basement" is by far one of the worst lines I've ever heard in popular music!

And Bono repeated it for extra emphasis at Slane!

I'll stop now.

I dunno, I kinda like that line...a local cover band (blend)plays that song and when that line comes up, everyone in the bar jumps up and down and sings along...

a play on words ya know?
